What is your relationship to money - is it simply a currency to pay your bills, a powerful tool to help others or do you live paycheck to paycheck?

Those are all the things Choyo Wilson-Daniel of Guilderland had to think about.


Daniel appears to be a confident woman. She's a professional and she's educated.

However, none of those accomplishments made up for her deficiency in money management. In fact, her lack of financial literacy nearly cost Wilson-Daniel her home.

It happened when she lived in Atlanta. She says she was trying to uphold an image. For example, she had a nice car, but the bills weren't getting paid.

Once she developed a better relationship with money, her bank account and her life changed.

Now that she has a better handle on the power of money, she's written a chart-topping book to help other women handle theirs.
